What to Buy in December | Seasonal Sales Cycle

Did you know that there is a “best” month to buy certain products? Have you ever wondered if the products you are buying are at their rock bottom price?

Every product has a “seasonal sale,” and when grocery stores mark these items at their lowest price, this is the time to stock up! But how do you know when these items are at their lowest?

Welcome to the newest monthly roundup of seasonal sale items! With this monthly list, you will know which products are best to buy this month, and to possibly stock up on.

  1. Good list! The day before Thanksgiving is the absolute best time to buy sweet potatoes, 20-25 cents/lb at Walmart for the past few years. I just got back from Aldis and the pears and grapefruit were indeed at stellar prices.
